STOP WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS IN AMERICA!
Regardless of your position on capital punishment,
NOBODY wants the innocent executed. Studies have demonstrated
that one in seven people sent to death row are later proven innocent,
and more innocent people are being sent to death row every year.
Since capital punishment was reinstated in 1973, 86 death row
prisoners nationwide have been found to be innocent - at least
eight as a result of DNA evidence. These prisoners spent an average
of seven years on death row before proving their innocence. Meanwhile,
the time between the average capital conviction and execution
is eight years. Given drastic new restrictions on prisoner appeals
resulting from the Congress' 1996 Anti-Terrorism
and Effective Death Penalty Act (AEDPA) and similar state
legislation, this timeframe is only expected to shorten.
